KTM300 Pipe guard/Bash plate options

G'day all,
I have been looking through old posts for information on the pickles/PRP pipe guards. I have an '04 300EXC with the crappy Hyde protector, and was wanting to know if anyone has cut down the hyde protector to use it as just a bashplate and also put on a pickles guard.
Also if anyone has an old pickles guard they want to sell, let me know!

After using Hydes on a few 300's I finally gave up on them and now run a B & B alloy bash plate and E Line Carbon fibre pipe guard on my 08 300. They both do there job and look great. I have used another carbon fibre pipe guard from Proline (still have it in the shed somewhere - fits a stock 08 300 pipe) but it doesn't provide the same amount of cover as the E Line does letting a few dings through on the outside bend of the chamber.

Absolutely.. I had the Fastway Alloy Bashplate and a P3 Carbon Chamber Guard. Perfect I thought..

I think for most it is the fact that in the wet it is like a big ol' scoop... it traps leaves, sticks, etc and this in turn traps mud... the thing fills itself in and before you know it you are carrying 20 Kg's of mud with you.. Good in the dry tho..

Others don't like the way it is mounted however, it used to only take me about 3 minutes to take it off and put it back on..

I've found that it does collect a large amount of debris (and is painful to clean out without removing), but the biggest concern for me is not having very good impact resistance from bigger hits. I know that you can easily replace a pipe, but if it takes part of the cylinder flange with it, $$$. I'm gonna try and cut down the plastic down and just use it as a bash plate (trying to save $). I'm not worried about the smaller dings from roost etc.. so the PRP guard seems the goods.

This is my '04 300.
When I bought my bike it had the pickles guard already on it.

I bought the hyde bash plate without the pipe guard and fitted it under the pickles. I just had to drill 2 holes in it to allow the U bolt on the front left to go through.

I know you have the bash plate with the pipe guard in one but at least it gives you an idea on what it will look like.

I'm thinking because it's for an '03 it won't fit.
